Once you've applied and have been admitted at Delta, you'll need to set up your Delta College account. But what is your Delta account? How does it differ from your application account? What can you access with it? And most importantly, how do you set it up? Check out the answers to all of these questions below.
What is the difference between my Application account and delta account?
When you applied to Delta College you used a personal email address and password that you can use to access that application at any time. However, that is not the same username and password that you'll use to access all of your Delta College information. You'll receive that information 4 hours after you've been admitted. So what's the difference between your application account and your Delta College account?
|Application Account||Delta Account|
|Apply to Delta||Set up after admitted to Delta|
|Fill out guided self-placement survey||Access all my student records|
|Find my student ID number||Register and pay for classes|
|Access my acceptance letter||Access email and online classes|
|Uses personal email (gmail, yahoo, icloud, etc.)||Uses delta.edu domain|

Once you're a Delta student, your Delta College email will be extremely important.

It is so important that you check this often so you don't miss any important information or deadlines.

Student Self-Service is where you'll go to register for classes, check on the status of your financial aid, and pay for your classes.
How do I set up my Delta Account?
Once you've been admitted to Delta College and have received your account creation link from firstname.lastname@example.org, you're ready to set up your Delta account and Multifactor Authentication (MFA).
What is Multifactor Authentication?
Multifactor Authentication or MFA is an extra level of security that protects your Delta account. There are four different ways to confirm your identity:
- App – receive a push notification to the Microsoft Authenticator app
- Phone – receive a phone call and hit the pound sign to confirm it’s you
- Text – receive a six-digit code in a text message
- Email – receive a six-digit code in an email to a non-Delta email address
Do I have to set up mfa?
Yes, all students and staff members of Delta College have to set up MFA. It's in place to protect you and your information.
If you're having issues setting up MFA, contact the Help Desk at 989-686-9575 or email@example.com for assistance.
